We run a 30-week program with breaks for Thanksgiving, Christmas and a week off in the spring (this week can be used for snow make up days if needed).

In the event that a class needs to be cancelled or delayed due to inclement weather, it will be posted on this page and also on our Facebook page. Cancellations will also be listed on WJTL 90.3, WDAC 94.5 and WGAL TV channel 8. You may register for an e-mail notice by logging onto WGAL.com. We will be listed as “Parent & Preschool Center”.
